Mrs Popplesfield keeping an eye on the winter tomatoes that Laura from work gave me. There’s 4 tomato plants at the back that were planted a week before the two little ones at the left hand front. Amazing what difference a week has made! Laura told me that the tomato plants will sit and sulk all winter and not do anything much, but they’ll get a head start in Spring and we’ll be gorging on tomatoes in December. Sounded like a worthwhile experiment to me!
To the right of the tomatoes are a couple of green caulies that she gave me as well. These two were the only ones that survived from the punnetful they arrived in. They’re not looking terribly happy, so I’m guessing they were planted a bit too late. Still, time will tell.
I had some leeks to plant, so I popped them in among the tomatoes. Most of them have survived, so hopefully come Spring we’ll be enjoying potato and leek soup.
